EVENTS DIARY

The table below lists the events which our members are thinking about attending in 2016.  Sometimes our members will be split between two or even more events, depending on which is nearest to where they live or personal preferences.

Sometimes we may substitute an event for another if our members wish to do so, or if an event organiser offers to pay costs towards our attendance for a specific display.

Please note, the dates shown on this page are subject to change.  Check this page regularly for updates.

If you miss the deadline for letting us know you want to attend (events marked CLOSED), you will have to contact the event organisers yourself to make your own arrangements to go (and may have to pay entry fee).
